I believe it will fit if the crankshaft diameter and length are the same. They probably are as most are standard size, but check. It may take a bit of adapting to make the throttle cable, starter cable, fuel line, etc... fit.

Many of the online dealers have dimensional drawings you can check. If these aren't current models, you can call B&S customer service and they can give you the information if you have model #'s.

I wanted to replace a Tecumseh H50 with a new engine and a lot of people - dealers, online forums, etc - told me that it would not fit. B&S faxed me detailed instructions and in fact the Intek Snow 7.5 fits on the same mounting holes as the old engine - same shaft diameter and location (but longer bolts were needed for the new engine). They were great.

Will the twin cylinder engine fit under the hood of the mower?
